The United Methodist Women continue to uphold the tradition of equipping and encouraging Christ’s followers to grow and show Christ’s love to the world. Throughout the year the UMW hosts events that connect women together for support and growth as well as open events that focus on educating everyone on a particular issue facing our culture today. The UMW is open to women of all ages and backgrounds and exists to enhance the ministries of the church as well as the lives of women in the community.

Gingerbread House thanks!
—Many, many thanks to all who worked so faithfully to create, set up, organize, donate, price, sell, make purchases, clean up and more for the Gingerbread House Craft Show.
It takes many hours, many hands and many gifts shared to have this event run so successfully for 111 years!
All of the proceeds from the Gingerbread House support local, national and international mission programs of the United Methodist Women—programs that benefit women, children and youth, thereby impacting entire communities. Mentor United Methodist Women is grateful for your generous support of this annual event!
